Aston Martin Racing won the American Le Mans Series round at Long Beach as Lucas Luhr made an opening-lap pass on polesitter Chris Dyson. The Lola-Aston Martin coupe sped away to the overall victory with Klaus Graf, leading the Mazda-powered Lola by more than a minute before a full-course caution brought the race to a close behind the safety car. Joey Hand and Dirk Müller won the GT class for BMW ahead of the No. 4 Corvette hands of Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen, who set a new GT race lap record of 1:20.552. Third place went to the hard-charging Risi Competizione Ferrari F458 Italia driven by Toni Vilander and Jaime Melo.
